Southern Smoke is a crisis relief organization for people in the food and beverage industry. We provide funds directly to people in need that are battling health crises, winter storm damage, natural disasters, mental health needs and, of course, those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We're the safety net for our industry, taking care of our own each and every day.
Donate to Southern Smoke
Our national Emergency Relief Fund supports the entire food and beverage food chain (from farmers and winemakers to dishwashers and servers) in all 50 states. Thanks to generous donors, we've created funds for specific regions or causes that you can also contribute to: Chicago Restaurant Workers Relief Fund and the Austin Relief Fund (a dropdown option on the national fund donation page).
New Fund Alert! Texas Winter Storm Relief Fund to provide financial assistance to industry workers in Texas that have been dealt yet another blow with the winter storms that have not only shut down restaurants (again) and frozen crops but, in many cases, also damaged their homes.
